You might remember the street action surrounding Israeli historian Benny Morris's lecture at the London School of Economics in June. Well London activists are now saying that his response to that protest was... racism. At London BDS, they offer this mind-boggling quote from Morris (from the National Interest) about the street protest:
As I walked down Kingsway, a major London thoroughfare, a small mob—I don’t think any other word is appropriate—of some dozen Muslims, Arabs and their supporters, both men and women, surrounded me and, walking alongside me for several hundred yards as I advanced towards the building where the lecture was to take place, raucously harangued and baited me with cries of “fascist,” “racist,” “England should never have allowed you in,” “you shouldn’t be allowed to speak.” Several spoke in broken, obviously newly acquired, English.
Violence was thick in the air though none was actually used. Passersby looked on in astonishment, and perhaps shame, but it seemed the sight of angry bearded, caftaned Muslims was sufficient to deter any intervention. To me, it felt like Brownshirts in a street scene in 1920s Berlin—though on Kingsway no one, to the best of my recall, screamed the word ‘Jew’....
Uncurbed, Muslim intimidation in the public domain of people they see as disagreeing with them is palpable and palpably affecting the British Christian majority among whom they live, indeed, cowing them into silence.
London BDS then links to this video below, showing Morris's walk to the LSE in June at minute 31 or so-- with deconstruction of his claims. Yes, people are hurling accusations at Morris, but his version of events seems, well... Islamophobic.
